This is a bug in 151006 that will be addressed next week with an
update.  The 'entire' package should require omnios-userland to be
installed, but it doesn't, and that will be fixed in the update.

You can `pkg install
incorporation/jeos/omnios-userland at 11,5.11-0.151006` to actually get
it on your system.

Right, this is because omnios-userland isn't there to prevent them
from upgrading past 151006.
